Last weeks big news was the release of Firefox 3.0. But a quieter event happened the Tuesday prior — Opera 9.5 was released. I’m a regular user of Firefox, although Firebug is starting to piss me off. I haven’t used Opera since they experimented with an ad-based model serveral years ago. It was always fast, but felt clunky.
So I suggest taking a look at it. I’ll probably end up using Firefox 3 more often, as I’m a creature of habit, but the folks at Opera Software have done a great job and it is always nice to have another standards-compliant browser to test with.
